Pear, Prosciutto, Arugula, Caramelized Onion & Goat Cheese Pizza

Yes, that is a LOT of toppings. For pizza night I had planned to make my favorite Caramelized Onion & Prosciutto Pizza but then got a little carried away with the toppings. I just couldn't stop. And I'm glad I didn't because this pizza is now my new favorite! You should make this for dinner...tonight.
Pear, Prosciutto, Arugula, Caramelized Onion & Goat Cheese Pizza


1 pizza crust
1 pear, thinly sliced
olive oil
1 red onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup brown sugar
Kosher salt, to taste
2 cups arugula
1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
8 slices Prosciutto


Preheat oven to 500 degrees.

Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet. Add onions and brown sugar and toss/stir for several minutes, or until onions are brown and cooked. Set aside.

Roll out pizza dough. Drizzle on olive oil, sprinkle on a little salt.

Add mozzarella evenly over the top of the pizza. Arrange caramelized onions, prosciutto and pears.

Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the lower half of the oven, or until crust is golden brown. Remove from oven. Sprinkle a layer of arugula. Top with goat cheese. Slice and serve immediately.

And then I took it one step further by drizzling a balsalmic glaze on top. Because once you've hit 371,532,874 toppings, what's one more?
